A Scottish blog about anxiety, minimalism and eyeshadow.

This list is going to be so short I could probably write it in one sentence if I really wanted to - for me, Florida is just not a makeup holiday. It's all about fun and just letting go and chilling.

So let's start with nails, well, I don't paint my finger nails in Florida (I'm clumsy and they chip and need repainted constantly, plus, it's good to let my nails recover a little) but I will do my toes. I wear trainers most days but I still pack a couple of bright colours to cheer up my feet if I decide to wear sandals; this year I'm going for Barry M; Shocking Pink and Rimmel 60 Seconds Sky High. Two non shimmery, super summery shades. I of course also pack some Quickies for easy removal of said polish - though to be honest I generally paint them once the night we get there and erm, that's it for the whole trip *blush*.

Makeup is more than minimal too. I don't wear anything like foundation - it would literally melt off me - but I will be taking my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I won't bother with under eye circles but this will be whipped out in the event of a blemish catastrophe. To protect my lips from the sun and to add a hint of colour - that won't look out of place with the rest of my face being bare - I'll be using pretty pink Hawaiin Tropic Lip Gloss, as well as taking a good old Chapstick for colourless SPF protection (and yumminess)

For Eyes, again, sorry folks, not a lot happening. I'm taking a mascara: the Maybelline Rocket Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara: this stuff goes on really fast and stays put really well. For liner, I'll be taking the black liner from the Bourjois Clubbing range - again, it's crazy durable. And yup, you've guessed it; no eyeshadows will be accompanying me on this trip *hyperventilates into paper bag*

And that's erm, that's it. It seems so strange to go away for almost three weeks and not take makeup with me - it makes me pretty nervous in fact - but I know from past experience once I'm there and having a great time, I will not care in the slightest about having makeup on! And plus, I'm hopefully making a trip to Walmart when I'm over there, so I *could* buy a couple of makeup bits... I suppose....

And that's it for this post folks, sorry it has been a short one. I had every intention of trying to do more of these kinds of posts and show you the likes of my carry on bag but a) all that's in it is paperwork, electronics, fluffy socks and Rescue Remedy and b) how do people manage to fit in doing posts like that at the last minute before a big trip?! I take my hat off to anyone who does it, I mean seriously. Right, well I'm off to do the last bits of laundry and hunt around for the pack of kirby grips I know I bought for the trip -where do they all go?!?!
